  • 96 RITZ® Crackers (about 3 sleeves)
  • ½ lb thinly sliced deli ham
  • lb thinly sliced swiss cheese
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion flakes


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place 24 RITZ® Crackers in the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking dish, flat side down. Place another 24 RITZ® Crackers in the bottom of another 13x9 inch baking dish. Tear the ham gently with your hands to create tiny strips (they do not need to be perfect) and lay a lightly folded slice on each RITZ® Cracker.
  • Cut the cheese into 1 inch pieces and place one piece of cheese on top of the ham. Top each mini sandwich with another RITZ® Cracker, rounded side up.
  • Place the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, about 45 seconds. Gently whisk in the Dijon mustard, worcestershire sauce, and salt.
  • Pour the butter mixture evenly over the mini sandwiches, dividing the mixture evenly between the two pans. Sprinkle the poppy seeds and the dried onion flakes evenly over the top.
  • Bake for 10–12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the tops of the Ritz Crackers are lightly golden brown.
  • Transfer to a serving platter and serve while warm.



Make it ahead: these sandwiches are best served while warm. You can gather/prepare all of the ingredients ahead of time, and then assemble and bake the sandwiches when you're ready to serve them. 
Change it up: any combination of deli meat and cheese works well here. Roast beef and cheddar, or turkey and colby jack are a few ideas!
